Day 2 – Sheboygan 

This morning after breakfast prepare for some hands-on experiences! We’ll begin the day at Relish Kitchen Store, a unique cook’s store in the heart of downtown, where we will have some fun trying out their gadgets and maybe even try some of our skills at chopping. Relish is the only retailer authorized to sell Sheboygan-manufactured, Vollrath commercial-quality kitchen products, to the public. Then onto the ever popular Olivu 426 by Caitlin Brotz, featuring all-natural handmade, skin and home care products. Have fun as you try your hand at mixing and matching to create your own lip balm & lotion, specifically for you. We’ll learn that these products even make their way to Hollywood! Her story is heart-warming and the store is delightful! After a very creative morning, we walk next door to the Black Pig for lunch with a twist. Not only is the food appealing, the building itself is a gem. Afterwards stroll through the world-renowned John Michael Kohler Arts Center where even the restrooms are a masterpiece! The exhibits here are simply out of this world, and we’ll experience firsthand why this center attracts visitors and artists from all over the world. The rest of the afternoon you will have free to enjoy on your own. Take a romantic stroll along the boardwalk and riverfront or just relax and enjoy the amenities of the resort. This evening R&J has something special planned for you! What’s in store for the second half of your marriage? Together with Great Marriages of Sheboygan, we have arranged for a panel of speakers who have been married 40+ years. It will be a fun, inspiring night of how to reinvent your marriage and reconnect with one another for a happy and fulfilling second half of marriage!
